These Bertha remasters are the greatest. Each one is as good as you can get. Thank you, Jay Ashley, very much. Second set is the stuff legends are made of. Have fun.

Yes, I know there is flutter throughout, and yes, I know this is a rather plebian effort by the band, but this Bertha Remaster is glorious regardless of flutter and tape hiss and sloppy execution. This is one hot recording -- made lively and acceptable by the Bertha remaster process.
The kick, the snare, the high hat is all there. And then there is the bass guitar -- malty and writhing in all its gang banging omnipresence, delivering you headlong into the fray of reckless second set-primed guitar sanity reverse.
Jerry, Bobby, and Brent all present themselves in a nonchalant state of beingness, nevertheless, and towards the end of the first tune they crank right into it -- errors and perfection simultaneously. Oh, glorious day! It's as if the flutter done wove his way into the mix and altered it in some strange array.
All the songs on this version, because of the remastering of this presentation, are all easily accessible. This concept is immortalized in Far From Me>Estimated>He's Gone. The GD always played Far From Me very competently and frankly, I think this song rocks! Yet, when it transitions into Estimated and then into He's Gone it gives the entire suite oomph. It is indescribable.
Such indescribability is personified in this show, this Archive version, which thus so adroitly moves in and out and about into the world of error, and thusly, into the realm of perfection. When it's done, you've had it. When he's gone, you may now receive.
It makes my heart flutter and wow.
Same old rat in the drain ditch.
